Communist Ideology briefly explained in complex terminology. The reader is taken through the history of origination of Communism with emphasis on the need to stabilize the living standards of the people of the world under one common principle of equality.
Some basic principles of Communism like abolition of private property acquiring rights, abolition of inheritance rights and nationalization of production are worth noting down. The emergence of the powerful Bourgeois (middle class) from the feudal lordship and its dominance over a period of time leading to subjugation of the Proletarian (working class) has given a new meaning to Communist ideology.
The major aim of Communism is to raise the Proletarian to the stage of political ruling class thus overthrowing the Bourgeois supremacy. The Communists therefore support every revolutionary movement against the existing social and political order of things in the Bourgeois society.
The reader might not understand many terms used by the authors unless and until he has an idea about the economic scenario of his country. Quite complex at times and the ideology goes above the heads of many until read more than once. This hand book gives the basic idea of how a Communist Manifesto works but does not spell out much about the benefits of the ideology at large. It could have been better if some illustrations were included in between, for easy understanding.

My rating is 2.5 out of 5

A concept born in a simpler time used as an excuse for many things from Socialism to controlled capitalism. As with any pivotal work, one should read it for his/her self. There is always the chance of misinterpretation by an individual, but if you do not read this then you are just accepting someone's word anyway.

This is more than an economics book it is a way of life. It sounds good on paper but makes many assumptions. Instead of worrying about workability, look at the logic that is built on assumptions of that time (written, in 1848). Add this to your library.

You can pick a side (pro or con) and make a stand if you like; but look at the size of this book and realize that many people will just use the title and build their own case. You will have read the real thing.

Be sure to balance it with "The Capitalist Manifesto" by Louis O. Kelso

It's neat how something that was written so long ago still has the ability to clearly explain things that are still happening today.

First, I did not agree with it. It is a good read in order to understand another political view point. It places little value on religion. The individual is inferior to the State. Capitalism is evil. This book is a good book to read to understand what Communism is all about. I'll read it again and take notes this time.

Clear description of the existing social system.

In 1845, European Socialists held a convention in London, England. The organizers hired a young man to monitor and write a narrative of the convention including all motions and position statement passed subject only to review and senior authorship by an older and better known German economist. The young man described the convention as an evolutionary process and titled his product "A Socialist Manifesto". The Senior author stressed Revolution, edited and retitled the manuscript "The Communist Manifesto". The young author was Friedrich Engels. The Senior author was Karl Marx. If you wish to understand the politics of today, this is a must read! A careful reading of this classic-if not read previously- will (probably) amaze you!
